From June 1st to June 17th, I climbed McKinley’s West Buttress with Swazi tribal member, former game ranger, now world adventurer Sibusiso Vilane, who I met on Denali last year. It was a great trip. We had a blast, working hard, laughing a ton, and summiting on June 13th. Stay tuned for Sibu’s amazing story this autumn. Until then, enjoy. –Steve Howe
